Lost another pound!

Thursday, March 06, 2014

I needed that! Boy, did I need that. My lower calorie intake is paying off and it gives me the inspiration to keep it up! I'm 5 pounds from my usual maintenance range, 10 pounds from a weight I would be confident with, and 17 pounds from my goal weight! I'm thrilled. I know I can keep this up and I KNOW I'm going to actually have that sexy spring! Woo hoo!

I also picked a reward for myself! Once I've lost 20 pounds (12 pounds from now), I'm going to sign up for Zumba classes! I've wanted to do them forever, and once I've lost a little more weight I'll feel more comfortable jumping and dancing around other people! And I also figure that will help me lose the five pounds I'll have left.

So if I can lose 2 pounds a week, that means by the middle of April I'll be taking those classes!

I'm also excited to be making progress because warmer weather is coming! I saw a 61 degree day in the forecast and I was like NO WAY, I am NOT ready to stop hiding myself under sweaters! I'm ok with cold weather for a few more weeks!

Anyway, I just wanted to stop in and make a note of progress and success. I'm so happy! I'm glad I decided to cut my calories, I'm glad I convinced myself I could do it, I'm glad I've stuck with it, and I'm glad I'm seeing progress. Hooray!!!!

    That's great! You're doing better than you think! If I only had a few pounds to lose I would already be taking Zumba classes! I'll bet half the people in there will be much heavier than you!
    Good Luck! I know those last few pounds will come off!
